Start your meals with something spicy! Researchers have found that that it can spike your metabolism and even help you eat less. A study showed that men who had taken a pill with chili peppers 30 minutes prior to eating at an all-you-can-eat buffet (compared to those that had taken a placebo pill) decreased their food intake by over 10%. Additionally, the pepper-primed eaters opted for less calorie-dense foods too. Consider starting your meals with a cup of spicey soup or even an extra spicey Bloody Mary to get the benefits!
